UPDATE: The proposed ordinance was passed on 09/29/15 with only slight modifications to the fee schedule. The new fee for a tower application is the same as the old ($500, down from $3000 proposed by committee), but the fee for an add-on antenna was increased to $100 (from $50). The proposed add-on fee was $250.
Below is the information originally attached to this video.
The Door County (WI) Resource Planning Committee has proposed a new communications tower ordinance and it will be voted on at the next DC Board meeting Sept 29. This video is an interview conducted by Peter Devlin with Sam Perlman, Kevin Voss, and David Studebaker on 09/22/15 at the Sevastopol Town Hall.
Sam represents the Door County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC); Kevin is president of DC Broadband, an Internet ISP, and David is the Chair of the Liberty Grove Town Technology Committee and lives in the northern Door area.
All are concerned that the proposed ordinance will make it more expensive, possibly prohibitive, to provide high-speed Internet access to the rural parts of Door County. They describe how such access is vital to preserve real estate values and business location desirability.
